The new 1891 Terrace directly outside the Great Room in Adelphia Memorial Hall has so far been a well-received addition to Seattle Prep. As of April, the terrace has been a very popular spot for seniors to sit at lunch. Starting on May 1, juniors were also granted access to sit outside on the patio, perfect for enjoying sunny days at lunch.

The unveiling of the terrace on April 13 was thrown by the Prep’s Parent Association at the Patio Party. From 7-10 P.M., students’ parents enjoyed the new patio with cocktails and live music while getting to meet parents of fellow Prep classmates and parents of the incoming freshmen.

Senior Rory Belcher said, “I have loved spending my lunches on the terrace with my friends. I’m really glad I was able to eat on the terrace before the end of my senior year, considering how long it was under construction”
Kellan Burgess-Alm ’18 says “eating lunch on the terrace is a great way to get some fresh air in between classes.” She adds, “I love the view.”

Chloe Maximo ‘19 expressed her excitement for the next year to come, where she will be able to sit on the terrace as a senior: “I’m really looking forward to getting to eat lunch outside.” Maximo added “the terrace will be so much fun on sunny and warm days!”

Mr. Hickey shone some light on how the new patio will be used in the future other than just for upperclassmen lunches. He shared that the patio will “also be used for alumni functions and parent gatherings.” He jokingly added, “and it will be used for the president to sit alone to eat his lunch during the summer months.”

The patio is sure to get lots of use this spring and for years to follow at Prep. This patio will be used to enjoy the rare warm days that we must savor in Seattle.
